Braces without Extractions
Do I need teeth extracted?
The better question is, "what is the best treatment for me"?
In this case the answer probably is: yes tooth extraction would give you a better and more stable result.
When you said dentist recommended extractions I certainly would make sure you see an orthodontist and make sure that this orthodontist is not someone who "prides themselves" on how many patients he/she can treat without extractions. If this is their goal then it is easy to achieve, but why remove a great tool (extractions) from your tool box? Sometimes it is the best tool for the problem

Would I extract teeth in your case? I have no idea without seeing your face and images of your TMJ.
